Dolphin Integration, provider of mixed-signal IP, has received the 2011 TSMC IP Partner Award for Analog/Mixed-Signal IP. The award is based on customer feedback, TSMC 9000 compliance, support and success of the IP.
“We are pleased to present this award to Dolphin Integration based on their TSMC9000 compliance and good feedback from customers,” said Suk Lee, TSMC director of Design Infrastructure Marketing.
Dolphin Integration offers high quality audio converters with SNR (Signal to Noise Ratio) up to 95 dB with ultra low power consumption, which pass TSMC9000 at TSMC 65 nm low power process for the Helium2 architecture. The next Xenon architecture is now under TSMC9000 verification at TSMC 40 nm low power process. Thanks to the innovations in such architectures, Dolphin offers with flexibility the specific configurations of audio converters wanted by customers. The architecture further includes an embedded regulator for best performance and ease of SoC Integration.
“Our technical team appreciates the rigorous work with TSMC for each step of the TSMC9000 verification. This is a strong symbol of our common objective: offering robust products with quality, fitting our customers’ needs,” said Jean-François Pollet, co-founder of Dolphin Integration.
